About the Work
A lime green fan topped with a gum drop shape in lemon yellow on white are held down by black, angular lines in this playful painting on shaped panel. This vibrant work is rimmed in gold leaf that casts reflective, glowing highlights on the wall behind. Hill's work recalls aspects of modern minimalism echoing the shaped colourfield paintings of Ellsworth Kelly. Hill's choice of solid colors, restricted medium and flattened space, may also reflect the influences of Jack Bush and William Perehudoff. Aron Hill currently lives and works in Calgary, Alberta. He graduated from Alberta College of Art and Design in 2000 with a BFA in Interdisciplinary studies. He then completed his MFA at Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2006. Hill has exhibited across Canada and in Dubai.
